Welcome to Joyful Light Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique developed to reduce stress in order to promote physical, mental and emotional healing. The Japanese word REIKI comes from two others – REI meaning universal and KI meaning energy. The word JIKIDEN means direct. Jikiden Reiki ® can trace its lineage or roots directly back to Mikao Usui, Sensei. It is purely Japanese in origin. “Reiki practioners receive energy from the universe and this energy is amplified and passed to patients via the laying on of hands. Put simply, Reiki awakens the natural healing powers we all possess but which lie dormant, untapped.” (From Hayashi Sensei as remembered by Chiyoko Sensei in Tadao Yamaguchi’s book Light on the Origins of Reiki.)

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique developed to reduce stress in order to promote physical and mental healing. Reiki comes from two other words - Rei meaning Universal and Ki meaning energy. The sensations a client may feel can range from warmth to coolness and tingling. Reiki is a gentle energy modality.

“Reiki practitioners receive energy from the universe and this energy is amplified and passed to patients via the laying on of hands. Put simply, Reiki awakens the natural healing powers we all possess but which lie dormant, untapped.” (Hayashi Sensei as remembered by Chiyoko Sensei in Tadao Yamacughi’s book (Light on the Origins of Reiki).

How does Reiki work?

A Reiki treatment can give the client deep relaxation, which stimulates, supports, and accelerates the body’s natural healing ability. Reiki can help your body by helping it to clear out toxins, which often leads to lower pain levels. Releasing and clearing toxins can recharge and rebalance your energy and vitality. Reiki awakens our body’s own natural healing powers and can work well in conjunction with traditional medicine; however, Reiki treatments are no substitute for appropriate medical or psychological treatment.

What happens during a Reiki treatment?

After a brief discussion between the practitioner and the client about their health issues, the client lies fully clothed on a massage table in a tranquil environment. Your Reiki practitioner, who has undergone supervised hands-on training, will place their hands on the client’s head, shoulders, feet, and area of pain during the session, which can last from 60 to 90 minutes. The Reiki practitioner is a conduit for the Reiki to go to areas of the body experiencing discomfort. Recipients experience a range of feelings from comforting warmth to soothing cold. Often times a client’s relaxation can turn into a peaceful, restorative nap. Reiki is still at work!

During the Reiki treatment, toxins are dissolved and can be released by the body. Reactions then may include headache or even nausea. These are normal reactions and just a sign that cleansing is taking place. Your body is moving toward a healthier state. To assist your body in clearing out toxins; be sure to drink plenty of water and rest. Make sure to call with any questions or concerns, and schedule another Reiki session!

What are the benefits of Reiki?

There are many benefits to Reiki sessions, including:

  • Relaxation
  • Pain management
  • Reduced Anxiety and Depression
  • Stress reduction
  • Improved Sleep
  • Improved Digestion

Hospitals around the US are using Reiki as a relaxation technique for patients before and after surgery, as requested by the patient. Reiki volunteers serve in hospitals such as Brigham Women and Children Hospital, Boston and George Washington University Hospital’s Center for Integrative Medicine, among others. Even though results from Reiki are difficult to quantify and scientifically measure, like any pathway toward improved health, feeling better in itself is a success.

Can I learn to do Reiki?

Yes! Please see how under CLASSES heading.

I recently experienced Japanese Reiki as opposed to Reiki done in the USA.  There was such a huge difference, not to say that USA style doesn’t work. The practioner said Japanese prayers in the beginning.  Her hands were so-o-o-o warm. It felt so good. The session was one hour.  You are fully clothed and covered with a blanket. The touch is very healing and very much needed by everyone.   Please try it!

I’ve both practiced and received Reiki for years, but never have I had as powerful an experience and healing as I have with Nancy’s practice of Jikiden Reiki! I have worked with Nancy several times and have been amazed by the simplicity, comfort, and healing power of this form of Reiki without the addition of all of the other new age fluff-and-stuff that I have experienced with many practitioners of the so-called “new age arts.” Putting it simply: Nancy is an amazing facilitator of healing with a gentle soul and deep wisdom, and I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about their healing and well-being.

I have suffered intense pain in my left bicep due to advanced arthritis, joint deterioration and rotator cuff damage for some time. Under medical direction I have sought relief through a variety of approaches. None were long lasting.

After only two sessions with Nancy I found myself pain free for 24 hours. I look forward to more sessions . Nancy is an encouraging and compassionate practitioner who is receptive to your input .
